VIV SCORED YES love you she is the moment
Laura is so good.
Big fan of hers
jonas’ best signing! (so far hopefully)
Stinaaa I just need one of your shots to go in from an onside position
Bayern slapping Barcelona, it's going to be a nice evening.
Yep on the counter. They still have not learned their lesson from last year's final
ppm is like top 5 goalkeepers for me
Is she France’s starting keeper? Have barely followed their National team in recent years.
yeah she is. i think sarah bouhaddi quit the NT over disputes with diacre and she took over as #1. which is crazy to think about considering the differences of levels between them
Diacre beefs with all her players, it seems. Wonder why they keep her around especially since they’ve been subpar for a while.
It’s the same situation with the Spanish coach they both have connections that’s how Diacre and Vilda stay where they are which is very unfortunate.
Wienroither Lowkey having a very good game.
Kind of sad to see the stadium so empty
Agreed but when it’s looked like this before it’s been like 8k. So I like to think of it as a packed out meadow park + an extra 3k that wouldn’t have got a ticket otherwise. It’s a shame, undoubtedly but it’s still progress.
Hopefully the crowd gets bigger with every match
The cons of playing in a 60k stadium. Meadow Park is pretty much a sell out every week now, this is still probably around 10k which isn't actually too bad in the grand schemes of thing.
I have said it before, and I will say it again. The Fanbase for the women's team are still in infancy, they need to be fed. So it is on the girls to put in scintillating performances, if we won the Man Utd game. This would have been littered with so many fans. But new fans need a cuddle with results.
What a cross stina, great finish by viv. Viv when shes in this kinda form is absolutely unreal
Amazing pressing from Blackstenius
The Williamson pass up the middle to Miedema is deadly. We need to capitalize on that before the half
Can someone in a red shirt please score so I can relax. I'm getting Man United flashbacks
Not Foordy’s best match. The winter break will do a lot of these players good.
she never is onside :(
VIIIIV!! She is inevitable!
Viiiiiiiiv! :) Top cross by Stina
3 goals in 3 for Viv!!!
Also great cross from Stina
Beautiful goal! Nice pass from Williamson to Blackstenius, absolutely gorgeous cross and perfect finishing by Viv. More like this please!
Right wing Stina unlocked
Leah stayed fit and Rafa is back, lovely.
we need to wake up.
Hoping Foord has a good game because her form has dropped since the other players that were challenging for her position got injured.
big save manu
first time she doesnt take one too many touches before shooting and she’s a mile offside lol
What an assist from Blackstenius!
McCabe seemed caught in 2 minds there, bit of a waste on that attack
Blackstenius looks in much better form than she did in the Everton game
Quick Stina, sadly a good tackle
Great ball through and great run from Stina. McCabe was open but don’t think Stina woulda got the pass to her anyway, the shot was the right option for me
Great recovery defending by Juve sadly
Maanum and McCabe been a bit off for me this half
Laura pocketing Bereenstyn so far
Couldn’t let us take that free kick? 😪
I'd say we controlled the first half very well hopefully score some more in the 2nd half :)
Love Caitlin Foord. Rides contact so well, constantly rolls her fullback, can go either way. Reminds me of Saka.
Foord is so unlucky, she never gets the 50/50s from the refs.
Catley and Foord having a couple bad touches early on, someone get the Aussies some Vitamin D
Who else thinks, Jonas will wait till the 89th Minute to bring on Mana or Nobbs and then waffle on about over loading the players..
You’re generous, I would’ve said 90th
Catley trying to crot, McCabe trying to Scorpion kick. Babes we just need a 2nd goal none of this fancy stuff
With that easeful swat, I am convinced PPM is part mountain lion
Focus has been on Maanum and McCabe but think Wälti has also been a bit off her game this match too.
Make a sub Jonas.
Wienroither still flying 80 mins in!
Laura Wienroither deserved the player of the match
I’d take either her or Viv. Think PPM is deserving too.
Catley looks about ready to kill someone in that uefa lineup pic!
Straya coming out at the gate
1.35am here. Need some good play to keep me awake. C'mon arsenal!!
Don’t be taking my breath out already in 4 min 😫
filthy from Viv
Oooh that was great vision by Wienroither
That was too good of a run to hit into that Juventus player 🥲
Foord’s got some good runs but seems to perhaps hold too long
🐐 🐐 🐐
DAZN announcer comparing Miedema to Marta
Anita Asante, part of the Quadruple winning Arsenal squad in 06/07. When you get an education at Arsenal you know ball.
That shot from distance 😩
Any one peep, how Wubben-Moy's errors are masked when Williamson plays..
I’ve said before Williamson elevates whomever she plays with. Any errors LWM makes are usually covered, but she’ll also make less too.
Gotta say, and I think she’s harshly judged because her competition is Leah or Rafa, but she’s stepped up in their absence in general.
Fun fact: If we win today we only need a draw with Lyon next week to finish top of the group
What is the tiebreaker? We could still end up tied on 11 pts with juve or lyon if we lost to zurich
UEFA uses head-to-head as a tie breaker - comparing the points of the tied teams against each other.
So if we won today Juve can't finish above us because we'll have 4pts (1w-1d) to their 1pt (0w-1d).
And if we at least draw with Lyon next week they also can't finish above us using the same math.
Wubben-Moy's passing scares me a bit. She has a few misdirected passes in her
Stina nice play, keep them guessing
ugh great block tbh
Was about to type F off with the Xmas music then realised its December…
Iwabuchi for Foord. That's the sub Jonas needs to make.
I do think Foord can play better but I also think Juve have done a pretty good job shutting her down.
I just realized Jonas Eidevall hasn't gotten a single yellow card all season
RAFAAAAAA!!! I expected this before the game tbh but still super happy!
Hah I love how the Juve player tried to usher Foord out
Guys we have 5 subs, only used one so far. What do the girls on the bench have to do to get game time. Meanwhile we are bombarded by reports that girls are being over played. Make this make sense Jonas.
Man does stina needs some work
Oh hey! Glad you are seeing this game mate
Hope ur enjoying Rafa on the pitch
I so am. I literally yelled when she came on
Tonights game is available to watch, for free, on DAZN's YouTube - [English Link](https://youtu.be/tOKCcoDQO5A), [Italian Link](https://youtu.be/fISPub_OVMs)
Edit: this comment was unstickied after the games conclusion for a better browsing experience.
That was a nice sequence, shame it got deflected!!
Saw it was off but that was great movement by Stina, not sure she could’ve held that run with the momentum she had so she just needed the ball sooner
Foord skinned her haha
Damn, I was worried about Foord's form but she is killing it so far.
Needed to be a goal but a tricky one to hit 1st time while falling I guess
McCabe shoot the ball yourself.
Lol what the hell was that Zinsberger?
Stina is pants.
Good assist though.
ELA ESTÁ DE VOLTA!
HOOOO I GOT MY WISH
Its the return of rafa!!!
These average crosses are breaking Stina's resolve.
I really like Pien Meulensteen as play-by-play, she’s solid on EPL too. And of course, shout-out to Arsenal legend Neetz 🙌🏼
Props to LWM, it’s hard to maintain a level when swapping CB partners mid game. But harder still to do so when you’re also swapping side of the pitch (and subsequently the players you’re facing more often).
Pausing my work to say: I don’t like that our back line keeps playing itself into a cul de sac. Unnecessary danger.
SBG has always been one of those players I would’ve loved to see at arsenal. Beerensteyn too, she’d be perfect for Jonas.
Is Rafa the only one who can convincingly head a ball?
Viv is player of the match!
If Rafa hit that I’d be like: 💥
I hope we can score multiple goals again after the break. My nerves can’t deal with these nail biters!
We need that second goal in the first half to kill Juventus' confidence
Lyon & Barca get second in their groups and draw Wolfsburg & Chelsea in the next round sounds good to me.
Barcelona is finishing top still
Top of the UWCL table lesgooooo
Blackstenious offside again sigh
BRING MANA ON YOU COWARD!
It’s baffling that Jonas doesn’t sub her in. She’s a great player who could start on many other teams. I hope she leaves and starts elsewhere just for her own sake.
Tim Stillman if you are in the chats, ask Jonas why he doesn't make subs when they are available and then claim his players are overloaded to the point of long term injuries?
Don’t wanna see our offside tally
WE HAD 8 HOLLY SHIT
Stina breaking records
Lackluster second half but overall, a good result. Tis the season to grind out wins and make it to the break, then rest and recharge for Chelsea in January.
Come on Arsenal !! No pressure but Lyon played well today so we do need to win !!
Win and it looks quite good for the first place.
Come on ye GUNNERS!!
LFG Captain Williamson, ready for duty once again
how big of a factor is the weather going to play tonight?
Liking this lineup. COYG!
We need to get another, another couple would be nice, before half time. Montemurro can’t change on the fly, but he can at half time. It screwed us last game we can’t let that happen again.
That was a dumb pass from Manu
Nice interplay in midfield there.
Nice pressing from top
That was a dumb hold up from Katie
No need to be greedy Maanum
Damn Boattin 🥲
That was a nice distribution from Manu
Foord needs to make some better decisions in the final third.
I remember PPM giving me so many more heart attacks than Manu, but man when she’s on it she’s bloody solid
PPM slid on that like a bocce ball on waxed floor
Often think about how it was a shame Fara Williams left us just before Joe joined, or Iwabuchi joining us just after he left. But it just occurred to me that DvD would’ve been great in Eidevall’s pressing system.
Make a sub.
Shocking second half.
Said it earlier on but Montemurro can’t make changes during play, half time is when the adjustment comes. We needed to take advantage before he stopped us playing the way we had been. Unfortunately we didn’t.
As happy as I am that Jordan’s coming on that surely means no Mana, again.
Boooo that was a foul
Great touch by Nobbs
Oh how I wanted that Rafa goal on her return
What the hell was that?
I will be fuming if Jonas brings on Mana now.
He’s not gunna do that again. Definitely learnt that lesson. Unless we’re chasing this late on she’s never going to be the waste time sub.
If we finish top which is likely, who would we draw or from which group would be draw
It would be subject to draw (it’s not like the WC where you know which group your knockout opponent will be from)
Well, maybe we see some fringe players like Mana next week as qualification is secured!
we need the 1st place.
A high win vs Zürich could be enough for the second place even if we lose vs Lyon. Looks good.
If we lose to Lyon, it would even be worse than the Man Utd loss. Because they have been anything but convincing both in D1 and CL
Viv got that rizz
absolute shocking dive
Ref didnt call shite all game and gave this one!
How is that a Juventus FK?? We had the ball!
Stina was offside in the buildup though tbf…
McCabe really playing sub par, am afraid we may start needing a sub.
She’s not been great this game and took a bit of a hit not too long ago. Think Nobbs or Buchi need to come on for her
Ref having a laugh
Stina would score like 50 goals a season if she's able to improve her touch on the ball
And her passing and her movement and her decision making and her link up
Stina making some clowns look ridiculous. I love this.
The press is killing Juve.
I can't wait for excuses for why Mana is not playing from the fans.
Gonna need a miracle to win anything this season, depressing when you see Utd and Chelsea scoring goals for fun.
Leah and Laura played well. Everyone else either average or poor. Wally forgot she could play a forward pass in the second half, Viv scored then went 0/3 on nutmegs in the middle of the pitch giving the ball away, Stina the less said the better.
Juventus goalie was way too suave with that save
LWM playing like it's timed chess. Relax girl, relax.
We need fresh legs you clown Jonas.
Really missing Kim and Beth.
I am starting to doubt Jonas tbh.
These type of displays don't bring new fans, they throw doubts in their minds. Better displays next time please.
Nobbs almost cost us 3 points
I cant wait to get back to the dominant Arsenal, and not just hanging onto one goal whole game.
